Favorite thing: --

In the banquet hall of the large pagoda I was introduced to the monk who seemed to be in charge. He was a friendly man who was very interested in talking with me. Unfortunately our only common language was French, which neither of us had spoken for many years.

Nonetheless, we tried to converse for quite some time, and he succeeded in confirming my impression that Tân Ba was still an intact, functioning community, which is something I was very happy about.

    I really enjoyed reading all of these. An amazing set of stories. Both of my uncles were there. I still remember when they came home.

      Thanks for your ratings and nice comment. I hope your uncles were as lucky as I was. (Lucky in that nothing terrible happened to me while I was there.)
